2021 Erin Fair Changes

In Class by admin

The 2021 Erin Fall Fair will be required to make some important changes in order for the fair to run smoothly and, more importantly, safely for everyone.

Below is some important information we would like everyone to understand about this year’s fair. We thank all our visitors, exhibitors, vendors and volunteers in advance for their patience and understanding. If we all work together, we can enjoy this wonderful community event this Fall.

Is there a capacity limit on the Erin Fairgrounds?
YES! We will have a capacity restriction in accordance with public health regulations. There will be signage posted at each building and seating events and volunteers will be working to ensure capacity restrictions are managed.

Do I need to purchase a ticket in advance?
Advance ticket purchases are encouraged as walk-up entry will be available but based on allowed capacity. If we are at capacity, we will not be able to sell admission tickets. Please note – only debit and credit will be accepted as payment at the gate. We are unable to accept cash at the gate.

How much are the tickets for 2021?
Online prices for our admission tickets have not changed from the 2019 ticket prices:
Adult: $12.00 plus fees = $13.50
Children (ages 5-12): $5.00 plus fees = $6.05
Children under 5: Free

Gate Prices, only Debit and Credit will be accepted*, and dependent on capacity**
Adult: $18.00
Children (ages 5-12): $8.00
Children under 5: Free

*We are unable to accept cash at the gate for admission.
**If the grounds are at capacity, we will not be able to sell admission tickets.

How do capacity limits at seated events affect my day?
Seated events will be a big challenge for us for maintaining capacity. Access to the bleachers for track events will be on a first-come, first-served basis and when we are at capacity no additional spectators can be admitted until there is space. We ask for everyone’s cooperation and understanding as this could be difficult to maintain. We will also be broadcasting the track events at other locations around the fairgrounds in order to accommodate those that would like to view the event but were unable to get a spot in the bleachers.

Do I need to wear a face covering?
Face coverings will be required at all indoor events and outdoors when physical distancing is a challenge. We are asking all our guests to please respect this public health regulation and make every attempt to stay a safe distance of 2 metres from those outside of your household.

What other safety protocols have been put in place?
a. There will be no exhibits in the Hall this year as physical distancing is a challenge in this building
b. There will be no café in hall, but the Homecraft team will be taking advanced orders of Apple Dumplings and pies.
c. Online virtual tickets are the preferred purchasing option, but tickets can be purchased at the ticket trailer using debit or credit only. No cash will be accepted at the ticket trailer.
d. Enhanced safety and cleaning protocols for our cleaning teams
e. Hand sanitizers are located at every entrance and exit to buildings and throughout the grounds.
f. Re-entry will not be available this year and stamps will not be issued at the exit to manage capacity.
